Summer Skin Made Simple: Tailor Your Summer Skincare for Glowing Skin
When you think of summer, you probably picture yourself lounging on warm, sunny beaches, visiting intoxicating music festivals, and organizing leisurely barbecues — in all this excitement, your skin often takes a backseat. After all, no one wants to deal with sticky moisturizers in the summer heat.
But, with just a few simple tweaks, you can simplify and improve your summer skincare to make it hassle-free and rewarding! Not sure where to begin? Don’t fret.
We’ve curated this brief guide on the importance of modifying your skincare for the changing weather along with a few handy tips to help you along!
And we’re also highlighting some of our favourite summer skincare products from Clayton Shagal.
Why You Should Change Your Skincare Routine in the Summer
Basking in the sun doesn’t mean you have to let your skin suffer. And while we may dream of having perfectly golden-tanned and glowing skin in the summer, more often than not, the reality includes sweat, sunburn, excessively oily skin, and clogged pores.
So, how do you fix this?
Simple. Just like you modify your outfits as the season transitions, your skincare also needs to be adapted to deal with the sunny, warm weather.
As the weather changes, so does your skin.
If you have oily skin, for example, you may experience excessive sebum production. So, the heavy moisturizers, oils, and creamy cleansers that you were using during winter will do your skin no favour in the summer.
That’s why it’s crucial that you adapt your skincare routine to cater to your skin’s needs.
What Are Some of the Challenges of Summer Skin?
Summers can be harsh on your skin. The scorching heat, uncomfortable sweat, and muggy weather can impact your skin in the worst ways.
Take a look at some of the most common skin concerns that arise when summer rolls around:
- Heat rash
- Eczema flare-ups
- Oily, greasy skin
- Dehydrated, dry, irritated skin
Effective Skincare Swaps To Revive Your Skin
In the sweltering summer heat, putting on any skincare may feel like an annoying chore. You might be tempted to slather on some sunscreen and call it a day.
It goes without saying that a high-SPF sunscreen is non-negotiable, but if you want that juicy, dewy summer skin, you’ll want to pay more attention to the products you’re using.
Here are some simple swaps that can rejuvenate your skin:
Use a cleanser with antibacterial properties that can help regulate sebum production and thoroughly clean your pores without drying your skin, like this Purifying Gel Cleanser.
Oily and dull skin and clogged pores are common problems in summer. A good exfoliator with salicylic acid or one that is clay-based and gentle, like the Oat Bran Scrub, can effectively address these concerns.
Don’t ignore your body. Use a gentle body exfoliator to maintain smooth and healthy skin all over! The Jojoba & Loofa Exfoliating Body Gel Kit is a great option.
The harsh summer sun can cause significant skin damage and even lead to premature skin aging. We suggest incorporating soothing, anti-oxidant serums with a light texture to keep your skin healthy and firm. This Elastin Serum offers all these benefits and more.
Move away from your thick moisturizers and opt for light, mattifying creams like this Ultra Matifying Cream to give your skin some balanced hydration.
5. Pamper Your Skin
Indulge your skin with masks and treatments every week to maintain that glow. You can even opt for travel-sized kits like the Sensi Lift Kit to simplify your skincare.
To maintain healthy, glowing skin all year long, it’s important to adapt your skincare products to suit the weather and your skin’s changing needs.

Whether you want to simplify your routine or incorporate targeted products, Clayton Shagal offers a variety of trusted products to benefit your skin.
